Honors Course Offerings
The following Honors sections will be offered in the Fall of 2012:
GSR 101 First Year Seminar (3 credits)
The purpose of this course is to help new college students make a successful transition to the intellectual and personal demands of college. In this course, students will complete a wide variety of experiences that will help them address these essential questions: Who am I, and how did I get here? What is college all about? Where am I going, and how do I get there? This course is offered as part of a Learning Cluster which integrates GSR 101 (First Year Seminar), GSR 102 (Critical Reading and Writing) and GSR 103 (American Sign Language and Deaf Studies). The professors will work together to design reading, writing, ASL assignments that are meaningful and relevant to the students' lives as new college students.
